Our yearly Holiday Concert is a wonderful opportunity to hear the Associate Orchestra and the Senior Orchestra, under the direction of Maestro Eylar, and the CYS Wind Symphony, under the direction of Pete Nowlen. Maestro Nowlen has chosen a wonderfully eclectic program featuring the Canton Folk Song Suite by Jack Loh, Summerland, composed by William Grant Still, and the exquisite Polar Express Concert Suite by noted film composer Alan Silvestri. The Associate Orchestra will perform the intensely powerful first movement of Beethoven’s Symphony no. 5 as well as Tchaikovsky’s Marche Slave. The orchestra will also feature music from John Williams’ The Lost World: Jurassic Park. We are delighted to welcome two soloists to join the Senior Orchestra: bassoonist Sonny Young will be featured in Rossini’s rarely performed Concerto for Bassoon and Orchestra, and Senior Orchestra violinist David Wang will play the tour de force final movement from Max Bruch’s ever-popular Violin Concerto no. 1. As always, the Senior Orchestra will get you in the Holiday spirit with its selection of holiday favorites such as White Christmas, Deck the Halls, Joy to the World, and selections from the perennial favorite, Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker. There is something for everyone in this rich and varied festive event!
